They should have made them take off on parallel runways at the same time to make it a race

Real clear picture. Great job. Also, it looks like the United 744 still has the old gray nose cone on the front...

This is a great pic. I flew on N122UA from LAX to SYD last May. It was a comfortable overnight flight.

I find it so interesting that two airplanes of the same time are shown like that. It almost looks like a faceoff.

United Airlines: "Yeah, yeah, so is mine too!"

You can tell the planes are all loaded and heavy.
